Rockets’ Nick Young takes shot at Mavs’ Luka Doncic after James Harden’s 60-point explosion
James Harden is making rounds on social media as the Houston Rockets guard scored a historic 60 points at the expense of the Atlanta Hawks. In fact, his performance was so impressive that even Nick Young had to get on Twitter to shower him with some love and include Luka Doncic of the Mavs in the act.
Swaggy P gave The Beard all the love he can possibly provide. Meanwhile, he made a very obvious jab at Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic.

Young claims that Harden isn’t getting enough attention from social media for his accomplishments while the media is all over Doncic just for his triple-double performances so far. Some fans are in agreement with the one-time NBA champion, saying that Luka is not yet in the same stratosphere as Harden when it comes to the MVP race.
However, it’s important to remember that Harden immediately trended to the top of Twitter for his incredible performances. There is plenty of media coverage that emphasized just how historic his performance currently is. No one is questioning that Harden deserves to be in the MVP conversation and is definitely one of the best scorers to ever pick up the basketball. The Slovenian sensation’s supporters bit back, saying that Luka is doing things that Harden could have only dreamt of doing when he was the third-best option at Oklahoma City.
Both players are putting up incredible numbers this season. The Beard is averaging 37.7 points, 6.1 rebounds, and 7.58 assists on 43.4% shooting. Doncic has equally impressive numbers at 30.8 points, 9.9 rebounds, and 9.6 assists.
These two will carry the NBA for the foreseeable future. While Nick Young prefers Harden over Luka, it’s a good thing for the NBA that such transcendent players exist.
